HS 720 question.

Does anyone else have an issue with snow / ice build up on the tires. Last night i used the blower and the snow and ice would stick to the tires like glue and they would not turn. If you tipped the blower off the wheels they would turn fine so i know they are not frozen to the axle. I think it is just a case of the tires turning square and not rolling

Maybe spray them with Fluid Film or something similar?

Help from an older thread

There are some helpful suggestions from this older thread about two years ago.

Just an FYI .... Here is the response from Honda.

Hi Thomas,


Thanks for writing in with your inquiry. The tread design was changed on the HS720 units, however you could put the HS520 wheels on the HS720 without causing an issue with the unit, the only thing that would need to be replaced are the push nuts that hold the wheel on. If you feel comfortable changing the wheels out yourself, I can send you the replacement wheels and push nuts if you would like.



Best Regards,
Thomas

did you try the HS520 wheels on your HS70, if so did they work

called Honda today and they had no clue on the ice and snow buildup on the HS720

thanks

I have the same problem with my HS720. I sure would like to know if changing to the HS520 tires fixed the problem. I used to have an HS520 and I don't remember it having the problem.

i've had a little ice build up on my 520 but only in real wet stuff. a good kick takes care of that. sorry have never had a 720......yet.

I replaced them for this winter and guess what ... It has not snowed enough yet to use it. I am beginning to think I will have to wait for next winter to find out.
